Transition – Moving on 2015

Transition – Moving on 2015

This year as part of our transition we decided on a whole school theme of Alice In Wonderland.

Lewis Carroll’s children’s classic, Alice in Wonderland, turns 150 this year.

For a century and a half it has delighted and puzzled us in equal measure. We have fallen down the rabbit hole with Alice, taken tea with her and the Mad Hatter, been maddened by the Cheshire Cat and had to convince the Queen of Hearts that we didn’t steal her tarts!

Alice in Wonderland was first published in 1865 and was inspired by a boat trip that author Lewis Carroll took with some family friends, the Liddell children, down the River Thames in Oxford. He told the youngest daughter, Alice, a story as they rowed along and she begged him to write it down. When he got home that evening he began straight away.

The book, and its sequel Through The Looking Glass and What Alice Found There, have been translated into at least 65 languages, including Cornish and Latin, and countless film and theatre adaptations have been made.

Alice in Wonderland is a book that remains as enchanting as ever, no matter how many times we reread it.

Every class worked around the theme of Alice and the final transition day saw all children get into the spirit of the day by dressing in style.

A standards assembly shared some of the amazing learning that had taken place over this period.
